MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian government has set as the top priority to stabilize the demographic trends and increase the population of the country, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting of the government on Saturday.
Despite the natural growth of the population, the demography is among the achievements and challenges, he said. “The top priority is to make the demographic trends more stable. We can stabilize the population of the country at 142–143 million people by 2015 despite current negative forecasts and provide for a longer expected life span to 74 years by 2018,” he said. The relevant state programs pursue this goal, Medvedev stated.
